0.5L Reservistenkrug Bierstein. It's just a cheap repro so I wont be upset if I get drunk and break it! :lol:

:giggle: It's quite tame compared to some of the originals! have a search on german ebay for Reservistenkrug. The prices of some of the originals in unbelieveable, one on there currently is €1,950 :shock:

UK 1930s watch to restore, it was only cheap but it means Che can wear this instead of the German one I bought that he's petrified to use. Just needs a lens and internal clean hopefully along with more frequent winding as I'm told it looses time (and if Matt see's this I've sorted our time travel plans, we use che's watch, just need to work on getting the bacterial part of the machine trialed...... :rofl: )

I've been expanding my British/Commonwealth cap badge collection, esp. the plastics. In the past few weeks I've picked up and East Yorks, East Surrey, Devonshires, Wiltshire regt, Sherwood Foresters, The Buffs and 2xHampshire regt in plastic. Kings Own Malta Regt, Royal Malta Artillery, South African SSB and a few of the smaller Corps I was missing in metal.

In the Plastic badges I have 43 individual units plus I have duplicates of some eg 5 Lincolnshire Regt, so the collection is 50+. Still a lot out there to find.
